About this Item: Edinburgh University Press With the University of Strathclyde, Edinburgh, 2004. Softcover. Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. 2004. xvii, 270pp. B&W images. "This is the first book devoted to an oral history of a British university during the 'swinging sixties'. Students, lecturers and support staff are interviewed about teaching and working on campus in the mid-twentieth century. Told in their own words, it is a story of struggle and sacrifice, pride and commitment. It reveals how the modern university transformed lives, how new technologies propelled path-breaking research, and how with new skills its graduates could remodel society.Eschewing institutional history, this book debunks the myth of the drop-out generation of sixties' students, their drugs and underground culture. It shows how one University developed as a community of the dedicated and brilliant, creating the learning and researching environment which made 'Going to the Unie' the classic formative experience of the British people in the late twentieth century." Book has very slight wear to corners; otherwise is in NF condition with no inscriptions. Heavy book so extra postage may be needed for non-UK customers. Size: 9.7" Tall.
